Healthy Child, Healthy World: UN Children’s Day

For the United Nations’ International Children’s Day, staff, students, and volunteers took to the corridors of Addenbrooke’s to promote child health on a large scale as part of the ‘Healthy Child, Healthy World’ initiative.

It was a fantastic day with music, dancing, art from local children and even a flashmob in the concourse! Most importantly, students were able to get involved with pediatrics and spread the word about key global issues including:

  • global nutrition (obesity, malnutrition),
  • children of war, poverty,
  • sex trade,
  • refugees,
  • vaccination,
  • education,
  • FGM,
  • divorce and family relationships
  • allergies
  • road safety
